Property Description

This totally turnkey duplex is a smart investment for an owner occupant looking to have a tenant to help pay the mortgage or an investor looking to build their portfolio. Stylish finishes, on-trend tile selections and vintage details will keep any resident happy. There are separate porchfont entrances, and each unit has its own special charms. The first-floor unit, accessed through a vestibule with original hex tile floor and wainscoting, is a sweet one-bedroom with skylight, high ceilings, a welcoming open living/dining area and large kitchen at the rear. The kitchen features pale gray J&K cabinetry, beveled subway tile backsplash, granite countertops and stainless steel GE appliances. The bathroom has a fun black and gray floral tile pattern in the shower, showcased by frameless glass doors. This unit has private access to the outdoor space—a deck for a bistro table and grill and planting beds below. The second floor is a two-bedroom unit with an open combo living/dining/kitchen area with pretty bay window and two more large windows along the breezeway for double the natural light. The kitchen features the same sophisticated finishes as downstairs—granite countertops, J&K cabinets, stainless appliances and beveled subway tile backsplash. The larger bedroom at the rear has another lovely bay window and double-wide closet. The second bedroom is a nice size and, in addition to the closet, has the cutest built-in cabinet for mementos. They share a hall bathroom with another fun tile accent wall to complement the gray porcelain tub surround and sleek wood vanity. On a quiet little block close—but not too close—to the Market-Frankford line, this house is in a great location convenient to University City and beyond.
